postheadericon Crystalized Tut

Feel free to use my tutorial as a guide and have fun giving it your own spin.

This tutorial assumes you have a working knowledge of PSP.

Needed Supplies :

Tube of Choice .. I am using the work of verymany which you must have a license to use. Please do not use this work without purchasing through PFD here.

Scrap Kit of Choice .. I have used a gorgeous PTU kit from Roo called "Crystalized" which you can purchase here.

Mask of Choice .. I have used WSL_Mask84 which can be downloaded from here.

Font of Choice .. Informal Roman

Let's get started

New image 600x600 and floodfill with white. New raster layer, select all, copy and paste Paper 9, select none. New mask layer from image WSL_Mask84, invert transparency unchecked, and merge group. Resize 110%.

Copy and paste Element 27 and resize 85%. Adjust/add remove noise/add noise/random monochrome checked/85%. Add size 3 fat white gradient glow followed by drop shadow. I have used 2/2/40/4 throughout.

Copy and paste Element 43 & resize 65%. Using your magic wand, select the center portion of your frame, selections modify/expand 5, copy and paste Paper 2 below your frame layer, selections invert and hit delete. Copy and paste your tube, resize as necessary, duplicate layer and drag this layer above your frame layer. On the tube layer below your frame layer, hit delete. Select none and drop shadow your frame.

On your top tube layer, erase the bottom of the tube so it appears to be coming out of the frame.

Copy and paste Element 8, resize 65% & drop shadow. Position along the bottom of your frame. Repeat with Element 3, resizing 85% & position along the bottom as well.

Copy and paste Element 11, resize 50%, rotate right 90 & drop shadow. Position on the left hand side of your frame. Copy and paste Element 42, resize 25% & drop shadow. Position bottom left hand corner.

Copy and paste Element 15, resize 50% twice & drop shadow. Position top right hand corner. Repeat with Element 17 and position at the top of your mirror ball's chain.

Copy and paste Element 50, resize 35% and then add the same noise & gradient glow as used before followed by drop shadow. Position top left hand corner of your frame. Drag this layer just above your frame layer.

Copy and paste Element 4, position bottom left hand corner. Layer duplicate & mirror. Layer duplicate & flip.

X out white background, merge visible. Open white background, resize to your liking (I have used 500x500).

Add copyright and name on your tag. I have used Informal Roman, Size 72 & color #4e134f. Afterwards I added the same noise, gradient glow & drop shadow as used before.

Save and you are done.

I hope you have enjoyed my tutorial.
